EBRD Beginning Review of Public Information Policy

23 December 2010

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has announced plans to review its Public Information Policy (PIP).

The Bank indicated that it is requesting comments on its existing policy by the end of January and later will conduct a series of stakeholder consultations.

After receiving comments, due Jan. 28, 2011, the EBRD said it will prepare a revised PIP.  The draft revision will be posted in English and Russian on the website for 45 calendar days. “In parallel, there will be consultation workshops with civil society representatives and other external stakeholders.”

At the end of that consultation process, the draft final PIP (along with a summary of the comments on the website posting and staff responses) will be prepared for consideration and final approval by the EBRD Board of Directors. The announcement does not specify if this version will be made public.

Public comments should be sent to PIPreviewComment@ebrd.com.
